Classes

Setting boundaries that actually work - a Masterclass.

 

Join me in this comprehensive, online, live, one time masterclass, to learn how to set boundaries that work and create a better relationship with your kids while doing so. By the end of this workshop you will be empowered with easy to use, effective and respectful knowledge and tools, which you'll be able to immediately apply and see results. The best part? What you learn in this workshop will serve you forever, with any person, of any age. That's why I love the Individual Psychology of Alfred Adler!, the theory behind my professional education and my teachings.

 

During this class we will be answering the following questions:

  • why do children behave (and misbehave) the way they do? Why do they seem decided to make our lives difficult (or miserable)?

  • how can we help our children behave better and cooperate more?

  • how can we adults, get our children to listen to us, because clearly, they don't.

  • what is the secret to setting boundaries that not only are respectful but they actually work?

  • what's the whole story about consequences and punishments?,

and we will do so by learning the theory that explains behaviors, asking a lot of questions, learning solutions to the different problems, and practicing how to apply the teachings so that when you turn off your Zoom, you are ready to go.

 

This is a 2.5 hour class, with a 10 minute break in the middle, so make sure you are close to your device's battery/charger, grab your favorite drink, something to munch on, some paper and a pen, and join us from wherever you are!

 

Saturday, August 22nd, 2020, 9:30am-12pm.

I really hope you can join us since this is going to be a very special masterclass.

on Wednesdays,

A breath of fresh air for parents - a safe space for parents to share, connect, learn and feel empowered. 

After months of feeling how hard Covid has hit us parents emotionally, I've realized that what we need is not only tools to make our lives easier, we also need a place to vent, feel safe and connect. That's why I've created A breath of fresh air for parents: a safe place to share, connect, learn and feel empowered. Luckily, we still have one another (even if remotely...) and our enormous human power of support :)

 

Please join me online, on Wednesdays at 8:30pm PDT, for an hour of venting, connecting, learning and regaining hope, through the shared experiences of other parents and some pretty cool behavior management techniques based on the Individual Psychology of Alfred Adler. Come to one meeting or all!

 

Groups are kept small. Maximum participants per session: 8.

I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!

Parenting TEENS in times of uncertainty
 

Wednesday, March 18th, 2020, 8:30pm - 10pm

Teenagers and the actual situation. Believe me, I know how hard it can be. "Nothing will happen to me", "Until everyone stays home for 14 days and doesn't come out, my efforts are worthless", and "This is ridiculous, why can't I be with my friends?!", are only some of the many sentences mine have said.

I have two teens who had a hard time accepting the rules of this new game, but after a few deep, honest, straightforward conversations with them, all has settled down.

 

Please join me in conversation to discuss how you can best approach your teen in this time of uncertainty, get them to understand the seriousness of the situation and get them on board with everyone's effort.
